Skippers, today’s S1M regatta was supposed to be a double-header, with Series Regatta #4 in the morning and Series Regatta #5 in the afternoon. However, as luck would have it, there was some pre-race/early race attrition resulting in about ½ of the usual S1M skippers not being able to compete. As a result, it was decided to finish the morning regatta (S1M #4) and postpone the afternoon regatta (S1M #5). Then, have a double-header at the next scheduled S1M Series race (S1M #6).
As for racing, the day turned out to have moderate but very shifty winds for the remaining skippers. This made sailing a predictable course between marks a challenge Fortunately, the few weeds we had were annoying, but there were not enough weeds to be discouraging. As compensation, we scored an additional throw-out giving the skippers three instead of 2). The winds, plus the small fleet made the racing fairly close.
We look forward to seeing everyone at next Sunday for the Sue Linville regatta.
